Conclave of ICT


Computer Association of Nepal (CAN) Federation is all set to organise ‘Subisu CAN Info-Tech 2016’ at Bhrikuti Mandap starting from January 28 to February 2. The 22nd edition of the event aims to promote Information Communication and Technology (ICT) sector and provide a platform to the ICT enthusiasts.

“The number of mobile companies participating in the event this year has increased whereas the participation of the computer companies has decreased,” said Naresh Rai, Marketing Officer at CAN Federation, stating that the ongoing fuel crisis could be the reason as most of the computer companies are out of stock.

Considered as one of the biggest ICT fairs of the country, the event this year will feature around 220 stalls showcasing several latest innovations in the field of information and technology. Different mobile and computer distributors, computer hardware and software dealers, computer maintenance service providers, telecommunication operators, ICT colleges, payment solution providers and power solution providers are the major participants. Rai stated that the participating companies will be offering attractive offers and heavy discount at the expo.  Informing that last year the expo received around 400,000 visitors, he said, “The number of visitors will be retained this year too if the problem of fuel shortage lessens by then.” “This year too we are title sponsor of CAN Info-Tech and we take it as an opportunity not just to inform about our services but also to promote our brand,” mentioned Rejina Acharya, Senior Media Coordinator at Subisu Cablenet. Despite ongoing crisis, she is hopeful about the expo and expects an impressive number of visitors will walk-in as there has been no related expos for a long time now.

“We consider CAN Info-Tech as a hub where we can meet as many customers as we can,” said Summit Pradhananga, Marketing Manager at Huawei Technologies, adding that the expo will be fruitful to promote their products and services. “It is a perfect platform for branding and make people acquainted with our recent launches,” he added.

“Expos like CAN Info-Tech is one-stop solution for all kinds of ICT related products and services, where people can compare different products before purchasing them,” said Niru Dhougoda, Senior Marketing Executives at Teletalk, authorised distributor of Colors Mobiles. According to her, the expo offers an opportunity for branding with higher visibility. Citing that the expo is a tech-hub, she said, “We are planning to come up with attractive offers targeting the event as there will be sizeable number of sales during the expo.”

According to Rai, the executive board is finalising the entry fee for the expo, which will be comparatively less than the previous year if the fuel shortage continues. The title sponsor for the event is Subisu Cablenet and the associated sponsor is Huawei. Vianet is the Platinum sponsor while Nepal Telecom is Diamond sponsor and Teletalk is Gold sponsor.
